Don't just take our word for it. This is what our community around the world have said about our programs...

The Marketing Academy Scholarship is like no other learning experience I’ve had before. Forget textbooks, assignments and exams – it’s all about learning from inspirational leaders, being more self-aware and ultimately becoming the leader you want to be whilst being yourself!

Sarah Cowl, Aviva, 2014 Scholar / UK

When I first heard that I had been chosen for a scholarship I don’t think I could have ever anticipated the opportunity it would give me. To have the chance of meeting some of the leading CEOs and CMOs in such a diverse range of industries as well as the learning I have taken from the boot camps and my coach have given me insights and learning far beyond what I could have ever expected.

Nick Payman, Guiness Marketing Manager, Europe at Diageo, 2011 Scholar / UK

The Marketing Academy programme gave me the opportunity and chance to reflect intensely on my role as a leader at work, at home, in life. This reflection has brought a greater sense of self awareness and positivity to everything I touch. Eternally grateful.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

I implore all ambitious marketeers to apply for The Marketing Academy. It’s an unimaginably rewarding experience. I’ll come out the other end of the course a different, more resilient, more inspired & more inspiring leader. I’ll also, I believe, be a better friend and good deal happier. The course is about so much more than core marketing skills. The experience is so much more than the services offered – I’ve had access to phenomenal mentoring, but also met twenty nine new best friends. Apply now. Trust me!

Lottie Unwin, Head of Marketing, Propercorn, 2017 Scholar / UK

The scholarship has given me a unique and invaluable opportunity to enhance my marketing skills. I have had the privilege of meeting some truly wonderful and inspiring people which has not just helped me grow professionally but also personally. I would like to thank everyone at the Marketing Academy for this amazing experience which I will forever be grateful for.

I would strongly urge any brand or person considering taking part in the academy to do so, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity..

Yiannis Maos, Co-Founder and Strategy Director, ALCMY Studios, 2010 Alumni / UK

I’ve been incredibly energized and inspired by this entire experience. And I’m really looking forward to putting into practice what was discussed at boot camp, and contributing to key projects that the broader cohort is working on as part of our paying it forward goal.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

It has been a huge privilege to be part of the 2017 TMA scholarship progam.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

The Marketing Academy is an exciting and long needed investment to increase the resource pool of new Marketeers.

 

Steve Back, Marketing Academy Board Member / UK

The Fellowship Program is outstanding. It has a “hard” business orientation and focuses on building value. The teaching modules are world-class. One also gets the chance to meet a highly  talented group of people.

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

Winning a place on the Fellowship is like a lottery win for ambitious senior marketers seeking personal development. You really need to commit the time to the sessions to get the value back. The first thing I noticed was the quality of the Fellowship cohort – some of the very best CMOs from the top brands across several sectors. I feel privileged to have spent so much time with this class bunch. It’s really interesting to share experiences & understand that many have the same dreams and anxieties as you. Hopefully we’ll stay in close touch as our careers evolve. The program is hugely well supported by top class talent from the likes of McKinsey, Slaughter & May, Freuds, Spencer Stuart etc. – they really roll out the big guns. Who better to learn from! I’ve been going through some major career decision points during the program and the quality of the coaching & mentoring support here has been first class – and helped crystallise some big changes. My only grumble – it’ll be over soon!

Fellow Alumni / EMEA

I can safely say The Marketing Academy is one of the most fulfilling, valuable and enjoyable things I’ve been a part of – helping me develop professionally and personally, become a more purpose driven leader, and connect with some of the nicest, most ambitious folks in the marketing industry.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

Just Do It! The Marketing Academy is the most special learning experience there is – imagine combining the most amazing bunch of people, learning from the best in the business & having permission to take the time to really craft and think about what matters most to become the best version of yourself – both professionally and personally. You will leave inspired with a clear purpose and clarity on who you are, the life you want and the steps to help you become the best leader you can be. You’ll challenge yourself in a way you have never done before, ask yourself questions you have never thought about and never look at things in the same way again – I cannot recommend it highly enough, it’s the experience of a lifetime.

Kate Fletcher, Marketing Manager Captain Morgan, DIAGEO, 2016 Scholar / UK

The first thing I was delighted by, when day one of The Marketing Academy commenced, was the extremely high calibre of speakers for the bootcamp. This was quickly followed by the realisation that the other 29 Scholars were some of the most talented, ambitious and nice yet ego-less peers that I had met in our industry. The nine-month program has given me unparalleled access to and inspiration from the top talent of our industry, from TMA scholars and speakers, to mentors and coaches. The scholars’ personal and professional growth has been significant, with many outcomes shared at our final bootcamp, including promotions, payrises, increased gravitas, better industry profiles and personal milestones reached. I can’t recommend this program highly enough, it lifts the emotional intelligence and cohesiveness of the whole industry.

Scholar Alumni, 2016 / Australia

An extraordinary program of learning that will benefit the whole industry for years to come.

Daren Rubins, Managing Director, PHD UK / UK

The Marketing Academy Scholarship Program rocked my world and pulled back the curtain on just how big of a difference true leadership can make–far beyond the confines of the marketing profession to everything that we do.

Scholar Alumni, 2018/19 / US

The Marketing Academy is the most incredible learning opportunity. The combination of open, inspiring and generous mentors, coaching sessions, bootcamp talks and workshops and lunch and learns provide a brilliant opportunity to soak up knowledge from incredible leaders and think about how you can apply the ideas to your own life and work.

Emily Hare, Editor, The Honey Partnership, 2015 Scholar / UK

Bootcamp had the best assembly of speakers I’ve ever experienced.

Scholar Alumni, 2015 / Australia

As dramatic as it sounds, it is a life changing program. Be accepting to change as a human being, a leader, a marketer and a change maker – because that will happen. Without a doubt, this is the best education or self-improvement experience I’ve done, and the one I’ve had the most tangible results and improvements from. Now just don’t let the cultish language of the Alumni scare you- it just really is that good and we all believe in it that much.

Scholar Alumni, 2017 / Australia

For anyone serious about demonstrating the strategic leadership and contribution that marketers can make, not just in their organisations but in the industry and society more widely, then unashamedly do everything you can to earn a place in The Marketing Academy. The experience of the bootcamp, mentoring and coaching is truly unique and impossible to put a price on.
